NEW INNOCENTS PRESENTED

Chosen to Compose Senior
One of the most interesting events
of Ivy Day was tne announcement ot
next year's Innocents.
Promptly at five o'clock the thirteen
Innocents emerged from Agricultural
Hall and distributed themselves
among the crowd. The effect was, as
usual, quite effective, and the crowd
waited breathlessly to see the full of
the fatal hand.
As each man was tapped loud
cheers arose, which continued until
the last of the thirteen men had been
chosen. After the tapping the newly
chosen candidates were inarched to
Agricultural Hall. They returned
shortly to the platform from which
the formal announcement fr their
election was made.
The thirteen men who are to con

the coming yeaf are: Sam Carrier,

some Idea of what to expect at the
Oliver tomorrow evening.
The establishment of a single tax
at Nebraska is rapidly growing in
favor with all loyal Cornhuskers, stu
dents ami professors as well. At the
time the idea was broached, the
boosters were afraid that perhaps the
co-eds might object to the establish
ment of a fee for the benefit of activi
ties in which they could not Bhare,
bul they have once more shown their
loyalty to old .Nebraska by actively
pushing and helping in the campaign
The Girls' Club, the all-1'nlversity
co ed organization. Is at the head of
the movement to enlist support among
the co-eds for the single tax, and they
report that there is very little opposi
tion among the girls.
Most of the opposition yet encoun
tered has been from men students
who are working their way through
school, and do not feel that they would
be able to pay the additional registra
tion fee if It were adopted.
Now, however, a plan is being con
sidered whereby all students who
really are unable to pay the fee may
be excused upon application to the
Chancellor. If this plan Is adopted,
and the athletic authorities intimate
that it will, the above mentioned op
position will probably cease, as self
supporting students are mostly loyal
to their school.
